Away from the trials and tribulations that face Brendan Rodgers for a minute, Celtic Women are flying this season as Fran Alonso‘s side continues their red-hot scoring streak.

Celtic Women seem to be putting the disappointment of last season’s final-day title disappointment behind them as they have started the new season with a clear intent by sending a message to the league.

In the first opening three fixtures of the SWPL season, Alonso’s side have racked up an incredible 21 goals and have conceded just one.

Their 5-0 away victory over Spartans last night secured another three points as Celtic sit top of the league with a goal difference that exceeds that of Rangers and Glasgow City combined.

67 Hail Hail told recently how Alonso’s side hit Montrose for 9 on the opening day of the season. They then followed that up with an impressive 7-1 win over Hamilton Accies on Sunday. And last night, the Women continued their relentlessness by hammering another five goals without reply.

But there is still more hard work to come for Alonso’s Celtic. Up next is Dundee United this Sunday which is followed up a week later with a visit to Hibs.

October starts, and finishes, with the biggest challenge for Celtic’s push for the title. Glasgow City visit the Excelsior stadium on the 5th of October with Rangers ending off the month on the 22nd as they come to Celtic for the first derby of the season.

Sandwiched between those are fixtures against Motherwell and Partick Thistle. The next two months could be season-defining for Celtic but with confidence high in the team, the upcoming fixtures will not phase Fran Alonso’s side.
